Time for a new engine!

So as you may have seen on here my engine decided to pooh itself and spin a couple of bearings.
After a little contemplation I've decided to rebuild the engine and some shiny new parts were delivered today!

Are you using standard oil pump or spline drive etc?

N1 pump as Alex says, I think the 24U code depicts N1 on any part numbers.
N1 water pump is on its way too.
Rods are Bridgeway I beams with ARP bolts.
All being balanced properly before assembly.

Turbos are currently being stripped and rebuilt/rebalanced by Turbo Dynamics, block is being cleaned up and rebored for the 87mm pistons and the head is being stripped for a refresh and rebuild too.

Just need to sort gaskets now, will probably get a full engine kit.
I have been looking at the Nismo kit with the 1.2mm metal head gasket although we think we would prefer the 0.9mm Nismo metal gasket but it seems to only be available separately...

Excellent choice of parts, the Fluidampr is a winner!

Yeah I did look at the ATI harmonic but a good friend of mine runs the Fluidampr on his Time Attack Evo's so that was good enough for me.

If you still can then I would switch the ACL bearings for KING.

Looking good mate. I have a similar pile of parts to sort out.

Where did you get the crank from if you don't mind me asking? I have found a few in the UK at £975ish, but some cheaper in the USA. Currently have one on back order from FRSport for way less than that.

Keep the pics coming.

PS - not sure if it helps, but I went for a full gasket set, and purchased a Tomei head gasket kit, as this comes with not along the HG, but metal inlet and exhaust gaskets and oil restriction widget.

I got the crank plus both N1 oil and water pumps through Nissan, I work in the motor trade so I did get a good deal to be fair.
Crank was in stock in Holland and was delivered in under a week.

Yeah I was going to get the Tomei oil restrictor too as you can purchase them on their own.
Been trying to sort the Nismo kits through Nissan but for some reason the part numbers don't bring anything up and they can't seem to find anything listed so not sure if they are discontinued now.
RHD Japan still list them as per my screen shots above but maybe they just have some stock left

Just be sure to put lots of sealant around the slot in the N1 water pump, they are prone to leaking as the sealing gap is small due to the slot.
I welded up the slot and re-drilled it the suit the block to avoid it.

Few more Nismo goodies en route from Japan and the build can finally commence!

It's been so annoying driving around in all this nice weather just wishing I was back behind the wheel of the GTR again...
